I love to Beta a good story, so send me a PM if you're interested.
I want to leave an important PSA note here regarding the future of the USA. Climate change is real and has been happening since the beginning of the Earth, although there are differing opinions on what it is or what is causing it. Whatever it turns out to be, we all should be thinking about how we’re going to help our loved ones survive it. Not only that, but with the February 2021 Snowmaggedon in Texas (my home), the 2020 Covid lockdowns, and civil and international unrest, things are precarious at best these days.
Natural disasters are just as real, and though we can’t do much about those, we can try to make sure we’re doing as much as we can to help sustain our families. If you’re not familiar with some of the disasters we’re potentially looking at and don’t want to be caught unaware, I would suggest you research these topics: Agenda 2030, U.S. Navy map of future America, Magnetic Pole Reversal, Grand Solar Minimum, Yellowstone Super Volcano, Long Valley Caldera Super Volcano, Cascadian Subduction Zone, Juan de Fuca, New Madrid, and San Andreas fault zones, and Cumbre Vieja Volcano on La Palma in the Canary Islands
For good insight on other topics regarding the future of the USA, I’d recommend checking out these channels on YouTube: Ice Age Farmer, Adapt 2030, Viking Preparedness, Mary Greeley News, Pinball Prepper, Bear Independent, The Common Sense Show, southernprepper1, and Marfoogle TV to name a few. These alternate news channels report on things happening globally you won’t hear from the mainstream media in their attempt to not “alarm” the public. Personally, I would rather be a bit alarmed and have had a chance to prepare what I can, than to be caught off guard and have no plan for how I’m going to take care of myself and my family.
I have a favorite quote that applies here. “Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.” If you have people who depend on you, especially children or elderly, can you afford not to prepare? Just let the toilet paper debacle of 2020 and the grocery wipeout of February 2021 be your reminder. When panic gets rough, people lose their stuff. Start small if you must, just a bit extra every payday. It adds up quickly. Also, have 72-hour emergency go bags for every member of your family. You won't regret it if you do, but you just might if you don't.
If you have any questions or need guidance on any of this, feel free to PM me.
